Broxburn had a chance In four minutes when a corner into the box found Conor Kelly who’s shot was blocked for another corner .The corner came into the box and a couple of chances were created but the visiting defence scrambled the ball clear . Nicholas Locke was through three minutes later but the ball just ran away from him and the defender cleared the danger . On thirteen minutes Craig Purves gathered the ball in his own half and was allowed to stroll forward and from thirty yards out fired a shot that rocked the goals when hitting the bar and going over for a bye kick . Kenny ross fired in a shot for the visitors which Townsley headed clear it fell to Mark Osborne who fired well over the bar on sixteen minutes  . Three minutes later Kenny ross put a good ball into the box but Chris Townsley headed over the bar to the safety of a corner . Mark Osborne tried an effort half way through the half that went just over the bar from the edge of the box . Broxburn took the lead in 28 minutes when a ball was cleared out the visiting defence it was played over the top back into the danger area and NICHOLAS LOCKE  beat the offside trap and ran in on goal to score past the keeper .Despite claims for offside the goal stood and was proved to be the correct decision on our analyst’s video of the incident . Broxburn eased into a comfort zone when scoring a second just before half time when a Craig Scott corner to the back of the penalty area found CHRISTOPHER TOWNSLEY  who bulleted a header into the net .

The second half started with the home side well in control after the late second goal in the first half . Conor Kelly almost added to the scoreline on 56 minute but could not get any power in a shot and Craig Cockburn in the visiting goal gathered easily . The third goal came two minutes later when Nicholas Locke made a great run down the right getting to the bye line before crossing to GREG BINNIE who turned the ball past Cockburn into the net . Good play down the left set up Craig Scott who’s shot stung the finger’s of the keeper before he gathered the loose ball at the second attempt . The points were wrapped up but still had a fourth goal  and good play on the left from Greg Binnie played the ball into SCOTT RICHARDS who was delighted to score after coming on as a sub after a long lay off with injury . All together a good day at the office and lot of positives to take out of the game today after last week’s disappointment . Next week’s  Game is at Penicuik Athletic in the Football Nation cup with a 2-30pm kick off under their lights  a tough game is expected .
